Recently there have been some work office/workstation changes at my day job and I was lucky enough to get an office of my own. I wanted to make it more “homey” since I spend a tremendous amount of my life at “work”.
For some office inexpensive wall art, I decided to go with a coastal/nautical theme AND my goal was to decorate on a budget and make or upcycle most of what goes into my office.
I found these vegetable pictures at a thrift store marked from $10.00 down to $4.0o then 1/2 price – my cost was $2.00. I liked the frames as soon as I saw them. I taped off the frames and painted over the pictures with “Acrylique” paint called warm white.
I kind of forgot to take a picture of them painted 🙁 (before the vinyl) oops.
Next I headed to my Cricut and cut out some simple coastal/nautical shapes. I had some leftover blue vinyl from my Ciad Mile Failte sign. Love it when I can use what I already have.
I decided on an octopus, a sailboat, an anchor and a starfish.
I have just recently hung them up in my office – I will show you them in another post along with my other office decor items.
